    Need advice on Mk3 wiper motor

    Hi Everyone. Have just joined & this is my first post! Need a bit of advice. My windscreen wipers packed up yesterday in the heavy rain and now the motor whines when I turn them on but nothing moves. Do I need a new motor and would one from a 1.7L P reg turbo diesel or a 1.6L L Reg fit? I have a Mk 3 1994 M Reg 1.8L petrol Astra. Many Thanks.

    Hi and welcome...

    ...might be stating the obvious but have you checked the nuts are tight, sometimes they come loose so the motors working but not gripping the wiper arm.

    as for changing the motor im pretty sure theyr all the same in mk3's. ring vauxhall or go to a parts shop and ask them to check their reference book
